In some ways I am getting better at paying attention. I noticed this year how the birds went away from the bird feeder for about a week, and now they've come back. I didn't see that last year. I noticed how the mountain locust west of the house and the walnut northwest of the house have leafed out more slowly than the other trees. I noticed the wild whirlygigs of the maple trees seeding the universe. Small things, but important to see and to put in context. I noticed morning light high in the trees, before daylight reaches the grass. The light is there, high up, and then - soon - it is everywhere.
